The most common reason is worn shifting forks in the transmission. Check with your dealer to see if there is any provision for shifter adjustment.

Why does your Mazda stay on first gear only?

My problem was because all three of the catalytic converters were stopped up, i simply had them removed, due to tremeendous price difference, and the problem cleared up.

What is the purpose of Low gear on a car?

With an automatic transmission, there are four or five gears, each gear bigger than the last. The bigger the gear the higher the speed. But once in a while, you need power, or "torque", to tow heavy items or carry great weights up steep hills, for example. Since your automatic transmission Is not a mind reader, it switches gears from low to high regardless of what you are towing. So using "low gear" forces the transmission to stay in the low gear even at speeds where it wants to go higher. This gives you less speed but more torque (power), so you will be able to make it up the hill without burning out your transmission. So only use low gear when towing or carrying great extra weight and do not drive fast, read your manual for low gear speed limits so you don't blow your transmission.

Why does your 1988 Jeep Comanche stall and not start when it runs for a while and gets hot?

well, there's a doohicky called a TCC solenoid. Basically, when the engine exceeds a certain temperature and the vehicle attains a certain speed, this solenoid engages and locks the lower gears out of the transmission. This feature significantly improves mileage because it makes the transmission lighter. When the vehicle drops back below a certain speed, the solenoid clicks off and drops the lower gears back into the drivetrain. However, this particular solenoid is located IN the transmission, so it gets sticky after a few years, leading to a situation where the lower gears stay locked and the car makes an unpleasant BAM sound as it tries to shift into lower gears. The short term solution is to disconnect the solenoid, though this will cost you a little mpg. Any mechanic worth a cent will be able to do this in about 30 seconds and won't charge you for it. Replacement is rather expensive as it involves taking the transmission apart.
